And The Winners Of The 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Are…

Posted by on April 12, 2012

This year’s Revolver Golden Gods Award Show is almost finished with it’s live broadcast. We’re sure video clips of each performance will end up online soon. However, we figured we wouldn’t waste any time sharing who won what for those who decided not to watch the award show on Xbox Live or Facebook.

A full rundown of the winners can be seen after the jump. But to say that there were many upsets and surprises is somewhat of an understatement. While bands like Black Veil Brides, Korn, Evanescence, and Five Finger Death Punch won a few of the big awards, Avenged Sevenfold were the biggest winners of the night (taking home Best Live Band and Most Dedicated Fans). However, the biggest upset tonight came with X Japan, who won Best International Band award over Rammstein, Meshuggah, Behemoth, Sepultura and Lacuna Coil.

But that wasn’t the only surprise of the night. We’ll have more of a recap of everything that went down during the fourth annual award show soon. For now, check out the winners after the jump (in case you forgot, you can check out the nominees here).
